It's mighty tough, kids, but B. B.
Scisson, county supervisor of in-
struction, and County Superinten-
dent Tom Owens say your vacation
days are ending and that you must
trek to school next Monday morn-
ing. And, by the way, don't
forget that you're supposed to reg-
ister today beginning at 8 a. m.
Yep, starting Monday you'll have
to put in at least 180 days learning
your reading writing' and 'rithmetic.
That's Florida law. Anything less
than a 180-day school program and
Gulf county couldn't qualify to par-
ticipate in state financial aid under
the minimum foundation program.
And without that aid there wouldn't
be any schools in Gulf county. That
may seem like a good idea to some
of you now, but some day you'll re-
alize that schooling is the.most im-
portant thing in your life .so
get all of it you can.
Superintendent Owens says he
anticipates some immediate in-
creasein enrollment in the St. Joe
schools, which will crowd to some
extent, present facilities. But next
,year, he says, the present school
plants will be bulging at the seams
when" the paper mill expansion pro-
gram is completed- -and. before its.
"That will mean either additions
to our present buildings or the con-
struction of entire new plants," he
said. "We're definitely going to
have to have more room to take
,care of this increase, so we might
as well start planning right now."
A plan was approved by the re-
cent session of the legislature mak-
ing available' necessary funds for
counties of Florida, to build the
schools needed now while they are
needed and where they are needed,
C Owens pointed out. "This is to be
submitted" as'a proposed constitu-
tional amendment," Owens went

Observing the Enterprise-Panama
City Fliers 'baseball games Sunday
afternoon and Monday night, I see
that two players of the now non-
existent Gulf Coast League won the
Sunday game for Panama.
Leonard Belin came up in the 9th
dining of Sunday's game, with two
outs and one man on base. He got
his usual hit into left center field
and then scored the tieing run to
give Panama City a chance to win.
Tom Bass, another last year's
Gulf Coast Leaguer, came up with
a Flier on base and hit the first
pitch for a game-winning single
(Belin and Bass being responsible
for the win).
In Monday night's game, Belin.
made Zeveral good fielding plays
that kinda showed up the other
Fliers, and besides making these
sensational plays that seemed to
cut down Enterprise rallies, he
slammed a single into center field
'with the bases loaded to drive in
Jimmy Schantel, a Gulf Coast
League player, was the winning
pitcher in Monday night's game, al-
though he was relieved in the 8th.
He had a two-hit shutout going into
the 8th inning when he was relieved
by Bascom Hamm.
BELLOWS WINS FOUR-DAY
TRIP TO PUERTO RICO
Bob Bellows of the Gulf Hard-
ware Company, local General Elec-
tric distributor, expects to return
today from a four-day paid vacation
trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico, won
,by him for a record number of sales
of particular appliances. ... Inci-
dentally, we understand that deep
freeze bought by Mrs. "Star"Smith
was the final sale that put him in
the favored group.
Bob took a plane from Tallahas-
see Sunday for Miami, from whence
he was flown to San Juan via a
G-E chartered plane for four days
at the Caribe Hilton Hotel,'one of
the swankiest joints on the island.
McCORMICKS AND RADIO GANG

Mama and Papa Neal McCormick
and their Radio Gang will play for

He Gets Things Done
Off and on, for several years, the
publisher of The Star' has asked
various city commissioners to do
something about the abley 'back of
The Star building, which had grown
deep, sandy ruts, and said commis-
sioners would send-a crew around'
to spread more sand in the ruts.
Last week we asked Commissioner
Franklin Chandler if he couldn't de
something a bit more drastic, and
lo and behold, within a couple of
days some salvaged blacktop had
'been spread through the sand bed,
much to the gratification of the
Danley truck drivers, who are main
users of the. alley:

Un Bg Federal Pebt
Every Resident Carries Bur-
den of $1,660 On His
Mr. and Mrs. Refdent of Gulf
county and each of their children
now carries a burden of.$1,660 on
their shoulders as their share of
the federal debt, believe it or not,
and that burden daily is growing
heavier and heavier, with appar-
ently no end in sight. For a fam-
ily of four this amounts to $6,640.
The national debt as of June 30,
1951, came to $255,221,976,814.93 (if
you can imagine such a sum) which
makes Florida's share, with a pop-
ulation of 2,771,305, come to $4,-
607,394,739, or $1,660 for every man,
woman and child in the state.
Consequently, Gulf-county, with
a population at present of 7,460,
carries $12,383,600 as its share of
the enormous burden. That's quite
a piece of change!
Neighboring counties, with their
populations and share of the debt
are: Bay, 42,689, $70,977,232; Cal-
houn, 7,922, $13,169,454; Franklin,
5,814, $9,647,391; Liberty, 3183, $5,-
These figures are revealed in a
special tax report just received by
The Star from the Florida State
Retailers Association, which had
them prepared by the Library of
Congress in Washington.
The association's report urges
businessmen to express their views
on governmental expenditures in
immediate letters or telegrams to
their senators and congressmen.
The association also strongly ad-
vocates a pay-as-you-go tax policy
and the elimination of non-essential
government functions at the na-
tional level and good government
at less cost at the state level.

Avenue and Highway
At the regular meeting of the
city commission Tuesday night a
decision was made to build a mu-
nicipally-operated trailer park for
the accommodation of workmen to
be employed in the $25,000,000 ex-
pansion program of the St. Joe Pa-
per Company. This action was taken
due to the fact that all workers em-
ployed by the Tidewater Construc-
tion Company, which is doing the
work at the mill, travel by trailer.
The park, to be located at the
corner of Garrison Avenue and
Highway 71, opposite the ice plant.

showers, lavatories and commodes.
It will be clean and sanitary and
comply with all regulations of the
state board of health.
The project is strictly temporary
and will be dismantled after need
for its use is past: Sufficient rental
will be charged for use of the facili-
ties to make it self-liquidating, and,
perhaps, show a small profit to the

that of adequate lighting on
Reid Avenue. A delegation of busi-
ness men appeared -before the board

ommend proper improvements.

BEGINNING TO PAY
(The following editorial is reprinted from the
August 22, 1941, issue of THE STAR, and is as
applicable today as-it was ten years ago.)
We are just beginning to get a taste of the
higher taxation that has finally become inevit-
able. Some time back congress raised income tax
rates in all brackets and lowered exemptions. ...
Our taxes are now the highest in our history.
Even so, the revenue resulting will be far from
adequate to pay for what we are spending.
The answer to that is more deficit-financing-
which simply amounts to charging today's bills
against tomorrow's income. The tax boosts so far
approved by congress are but a modest begin-
ning. In coming sessions further increases, more
severe than anything we have ever known, will
in all probability be passed. Only a miracle,
which would raise the national income far be-
yond any reasonable expectation, could change
Higher taxes mean sacrifices for all the people.
We will be able to afford fewer luxuries-and we
shall have to make the most out of the necessi-
ties. And if the people must sacrifice, the govern-
ment should also sacrifice by paring down on all
governmental departments and eliminating the
deadwood. It is the duty of our government to
see that our sacrifice will not be in vain-that, in
short, we get 100 per cent value in return for
our tax dollars.
Back in 1941 we didn't have the vaguest idea
of what those "further increases" would be by
1951. If we had, probably a lot of us would have
left for darkest Africa or Puerto Rico, where the
tax rate is non-existent or at least reasonable. Un-
der your friend (he ain't ours) Harry Truman
no "deadwood" has been pruned out, but instead
millions more government employes have been
added to the payroll to boost the tax burden.
Trade with your home-town merchants.
Our luck gave out on us at last!
The rain ceased to fall in the neigh-
borhood of Stardust Lodge up on
the Dead Lakes and our good wife
handed us the brush and the can
of varnish and told us to hop to it
and stain and varnish those other
two doors which we did with
deep sighs and considerable blasp-
hemy. And to add insult to
injury, she demanded that we also
stain and varnish three door lintels.
We've 'been sorta down with ton-
silitis the past three days, so we're
really glad to find something to fill
the column this week. Our
recent "Do Fishers and Don't Fish-
ers" editorial is still getting results
-this time thanks to Wallace Fin-
lay of the Blountstown Record,
whose effort to belittle us brought
a backfire from Editor DeVane Wil-
liams of the Bonifay A ertiser,
who had this to say, in i :
We all love bouquets and accept
them graciously, but can we take
the brickbats that usually come
along with a compliment? You
know the answer as well as we, but
we feel that you should read what
Wallace Finlay, editor of the Cal-
houn County Record had to say
about The Advertiser and Bonifay
in a recent issue. He said: "Editor
Williams of Bonifay turns out an
excellent paper, indeed, loaded, it
seems to us-and we admit we are
not authorities on that subject-
with very juicy ads. Week after
week he comes out with eight pages
from a town and county which, ac-
cording to all indices, is one of the
poorest in Florida perhaps the
poorest. He runs a rich editorial
page and has a scathing pen when
he sees fit to use it. I think that is
Now we appreciate what Wallace
had to say about The Advertiser.
Honestly, we kinda feel that way
ourselves, and are grateful for the
businessmen of our community who
make that possible HOWEVER
when a Blountstown man has the
nerve to class our town and county
among the poorest, we must come
up scrapping. Just WHAT does he
'Our little town is small, yet we
have almost a third of our county's
population--which is small, too.
Certainly, Blountstown and Calhoun
county can not be placed in the
metropolitan classification how-
ever, since their native son, Fuller,
has become our chief executive the
county has increased in stature and
some of the old boys we used to
call by their first names now have
to be addressed with a prefix "Mis-
ter." Time changes everything-
maybe one of these days we'll be
fortunate enough to have a "Fuller"
in our county and a large percent-
age of our boys will be turned into
the green pastures and our stature
will be raised. It takes a lot ".f
nerve to call a neighboring county
"the poorest" when we almost all
